federal gun laws
Having failed in an earlier effort to bar federal agents from enforcing gun regulations in Missouri, conservative lawmakers are trying a new tack this year: banding together with other like-minded states to defy certain federal laws at the same time.
Gov. Jay Nixon vetoed legislation Friday that would have made it a crime for federal agents to attempt to enforce federal gun laws in Missouri and could have landed journalists in jail for publishing the names of gun owners in the state.
The Missouri House voted 118-36 Wednesday to send the bill to Democratic Governor Jay Nixon.
Bill would make it illegal for law officers to enforce federal gun laws in State of Missouri.
